Description

PACT Salon 2: Skeletons and Self-Portraits is a collection of works showcasing female artists who challenge perceptions about strength and vulnerability. The second event in the PACT Salon series, curated by writer and actor Emily Dash, Skeletons and Self-Portraits is a collection of works showcasing female artists who challenge perceptions about strength and vulnerability. It will explore how one's perception of themselves often differs from the view of others.

Over four hours, Skeletons and Self-Portraits will feature movement, dance and theatrical performances by artists Kay Armstrong, Cheryn Frost and Brianna Harris, screenings of short films by Emily Dash, and live music from Jessica Wiel. Installations will also be displayed throughout the PACT building including Lorraine MacLarty’s series of portraits depicting the moment when a secret is revealed to an artist, Georgia McKenzie's installation work, and an interactive installation where artist Louise Kate Anderson invites the audiences to ask any question (no matter how personal) in the hopes of breaking down the barriers around mental health and invisible disabilities

Emily Dash is an emerging writer, actor and motivational speaker. Emily's most recent credits include Johanna Garvin’s short film "The Milky Pop Kid", which screened in the 2017 Sydney Film Festival; Ever After’s show “How to Build A Home”; and "iDNA" devised by Collective 2016, co-produced by PACT and Moogahlin Performing Arts. Emily also professionally collaborated with the Australian Chamber Orchestra for their ACO Move program; performed in Front Up Emerge’s multi-artform exhibition “I’m Still Here” at The Cutaway Barangaroo Reserve; and undertook a writing and research internship with Matchbox Pictures.
